Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

At the Brussels show there were rumours that an infiltrator in the form of a Soviet version of the Leyland Daf 95 Series was about to surface. It didn't, but this picture of the Russian look-alike has turned up in the Dutch magazine Truck and Transport Management. As you can see it bears more than a passing similarity to the 95. Leyland Daf says it may take legal action against Kamaz for infringement of copyright.

• When Daf first linked with Leyland there was much talk of prospects for the so-called Daf Roadrunner in overseas markets, badged as the Daf 600 and 800.

Less publicity was given to the Leyland Comet, which was developed for third-world markets. It was launched in 1986 when such markets were at their lowest ebb, but has since sold increasingly well.

Now the Hawk can reveal that the shy Comet is also appearing under the Daf badge in certain third world countries, such as the Ivory Coast where Daf is the better established marque.
